Rust (upper body) remains day-to-day ahead of Sunday's Game 5 clash with the Senators, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Rust has missed the past two games of the series, and we're guessing fans of the Pens are eager for the energy winger to return after watching him emerge for six goals and nine points over a mere 11:31 of ice time en route to the Stanley Cup last season. He's skated to a minus-3 rating with just one point (an assist) following the conclusion of the quarterfinal series against the Blue Jackets, but there's no reason to think Rust wouldn't be able to make an impact in the series if healthy.
